Become a Java wizard with this popular programming guide

Consider Beginning Programming with Java For Dummies your indispensable guide to learning how to program in one of the most popular programming languages--Java! Java is an invaluable language to master, as it's widely used for application development, including Android, desktop, and server-side applications.

Beginning Programming with Java For Dummies is written specifically for newbies to programming. The book starts with an overview of computer programming and builds from there; it explains the software you need, walks you through writing your own programs, and introduces you to a few of the more-complex aspects of programming in Java. It also includes step-by-step examples you can try on your own (and email the author if you need help). As you work through the book, you'll get smart about these Java features:
* Object-oriented programming (OOP), a Java mainstay
* IntelliJ IDEA, an integrated development environment (IDE), that gives you one place to do all your programming, including debugging code
* Loops, branches, and collections
* Variables and operators
* Expressions, statements, and blocks

Beginning Programming with Java For Dummies translates all this foreign programming and computer syntax into plain English, along with plenty of helpful examples and tips. Learning a new language--and coding is definitely its own language--should be a fun endeavor. With this book as your handy interpreter, you'll be on your way to fluency, speaking the language of coders everywhere!
